Wermer Limited preview – Liam marked it as to-read Jul 12, Linear Algebra is the one course I regret not taking algebbra an undergrad. Nathan Hall is currently reading it Jan 22, Linear Algebra Through Geometry introduces the concepts of linear algebra through the careful study of two and three-dimensional Euclidean geometry.
This approach makes it possible to start with vectors, linear transformations, and matrices in the context of familiar plane geometry and to move directly The final chapter treats application of linear algebra to differential systems, least square approximations and curvature of surfaces in three spaces.
